The first Westerner to meet Mao Tse-tung and the Chinese Communist leaders in 1936, Edgar Snow came away with the first authorized account of Mao's life, as well as a history of the famous Long March and the men and women who were responsible for the Chinese revolution. Out of that experience came Red Star Over China, a classic work that remains one of the most important books ever written about the birth of the Communist movement in China. This edition includes extensive notes on military and political developments in China, further interviews with Mao Tse-tung, a chronology covering 125 years of Chinese revolution, and nearly a hundred detailed biographies of the men and women who were instrumental in making China what it is today.

This is a book for propaganda of Chinese Communist Party. If you want to know the truth, please read Pantsov's book "Mao: the real story". After Mao's "Greatest Leap Forward", more than 30 million chinese died of hunger and it is this Edgar Snow who said to the world:"I must assert that I saw no starving people in China, nothing that looked like old-time famine....I do not believe there is famine in China."(Edgar Snow, "The Other Side of the River: Red China Today", New York: Rondom House, 1962, p619)
